The construction company Aarhus Letbane I/S manages the construction of Aarhus Light rail – a 12 kilometre light rail running through Aarhus, plus the adaptation of the Odder and Grenaa line for light rail service.
The company is owned by Aarhus Municipality (87,7 percent) and region Midtjylland (12,3 percent). The minister of transportation has also contributed financially to the establishment of the light rail. The board manages the corporation and consists of the owners plus a representative from the traffic company Midttrafik. The daily management is handled by a directorate hired by the board.
Denmark’s first light rail will be up and running in Aarhus in 2017!
